2018 Infiniti QX80 Oil Change

When to Change 2018 Infiniti QX80 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Infiniti QX80’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Infiniti recommends having your 2018 Infiniti QX80’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Infiniti-recommended oil change intervals, your QX80 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Infiniti if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Infiniti QX80. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Infiniti QX80?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Infiniti QX80 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Infiniti has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2018 QX80.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your QX80’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2018 Infiniti QX80 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Infiniti QX80? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Infiniti QX80 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Infiniti QX80 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Infiniti QX80 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
